What an honor!

It truly is an honor just to be nominated!

If you are stopping by from The Homeschool Post, Welcome!

This is our first year homeschooling. It is quite honestly nothing I ever thought we would do. You can read all about our reasons to bring home our son, Dawson, after 8 years of public school, here.

We believe strongly in assessing each of our children individually and making decisions based on what is best for each one. At the beginning of school Dawson was the only one we had home. Within five weeks we brought home our youngest child, Brynne, for completely different reasons. You can read about those reasons here.

Two of our children are still in public school. They will stay that way unless and until we decide it would be best to bring them home. Honestly our oldest would die a slow death if she wasn't in school. She's a sophomore. Our third child is in the 1st grade and has some special needs that he gets excellent special services for at school. Besides, he loves it there.

Anyway, I have found that homeschooling is the funnest thing I have ever done in my life! I love it! I feel like I am a little girl getting to play school every day. And I have wonderful students! I have never experienced so much joy as I do in seeing my children learn. And I have learned so much myself. I am a schedule and order freak, so it has surprised me that I am leaning toward a Charlotte Mason-ish style of homeschooling. I know that we will continue to evolve in our homeschooling journey. I hope that you will sign on to follow it.

Thanks for stopping by!
